Family Birth Place: Education
Education & Tours Overview
Our expert staff is committed to addressing all the emotional and physical needs and concerns of each member of the family surrounding preparations for the birth of a baby, the birth and period immediately following the baby's birth.
Family is the focus of our Family Birth Place. Each family member is treated as part of the team because we understand that patients thrive with the support and love that their family members provide.
Childbirth Education Classes bring the patient and coach the training they need and classes are offered in multiple languages. Sibling classes help prepare new big brother or sister for their growing family. At Englewood Hospital, the most comprehensive offering of Educational Programs is available for new families

For mothers who choose to breastfeed, our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC’s) will introduce you and your baby to the benefits and rewards of breastfeeding. Your individual concerns are answered in private teaching sessions. To provide you with continued support after you are home, a Breastfeeding Support “Warm” Line provides lactation consultants to answer your questions or concerns. Simply call 201-894-3354 and one of our lactation consultants will return your call within 24 hours. Prior to your delivery date, you can learn more about the advantages of breastfeeding for babies and their mothers by enrolling in our Breastfeeding Class.
Tours of The Family Birth Place are offered weekly and are a part of every Childbirth Education Class.
